Take Charge II Project

The Take Charge II project is a continuation of the Community Capital Fund supported Take Charge I project that created a strategic plan for the Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and its Historic Northeast community development organization. Take Charge II takes the next crucial steps in the rejuvenation of the area by developing a civic leadership program and preparing for the management of the new Independence Avenue Community Improvement District (CID).

The Youth Leadership Cohort (YLC)

The Youth Leadership Cohort (YLC) seeks to identify high school students from Kansas City's urban core and immerse them in a leadership development curriculum. Students will be trained in the principles of community organizing, leadership, policy and civic engagement.
